Darktrace Hosts Cyber Threat Seminar in Milan

Thursday November 14, 2013

Darktrace, the leader in intelligence-led Behavioral Cyber Defense, held an executive seminar in Milan today, to discuss the nature and scale of advanced cyber threats to corporations.

The event was held at the Four Seasons Hotel, Milan, and attended by senior security professionals, representing a broad range of industries.

Corrado Broli, Darktrace's Country Manager, Italy, opened the event with comments on the diversification and sophistication of cyber attackers, outlining the challenge faced by large enterprises today.

In the main presentation, Managing Director Steve Huxter argued that a new era of cyber threat has begun, requiring a fundamentally new approach to the challenge of defending against large-scale cyber-attack.

“Today's threats cannot simply be locked out,” he commented. “We need to monitor subtle behavioral changes in real time and detect new threats as they emerge, in order to stay ahead of changing attack methods.”

Animated discussions focused on large-scale data exfiltration, the challenges of protecting information in geographically distributed environments and Darktrace's unique ability to detect subtle changes in user and machine behavior in order to mitigate risk.
